I can't recommend Red Wing boots highly enough. In my experience they hold up better than Doc Martens; you can run just about anything short of a tank over their steel toe boots.

i actually like leggings.  it means i can go out with a skirt that is too short to wear on its own, and it's a way to cover up hairy legs in the summer when it's just too hot for pants.  i also think that leggings + extra-long shirt/very short dress can look cute.  what really pisses me off is, as people mentioned, those girls who wear them as pants.  girls who wear normal length shirts/sweaters with leggings have obviously missed the point.  your crotch never ever be showing!  if it is, you're doing it wrong!

Oh, man, yes.


I find it so much easier to find good-looking outfits for boys/men than outfits for ladies that I could and would wear myself. It's annoying, and it actually has me considering buying more "women's magazines", but I am poor.

Oh god. I'm really digging the first picture. But I'm a bit worried that a lot of those articles won't translate well to most men's figures. Tall and lean guys have all the good clothes.

Also, when I say I tend to wear just tights. I mean like this (in the first picture, the second picture is just to show my damn awesome jacket): http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj156/Sneakers_King/tightsandjacket.jpg

Although that shirt is being worn more like a dress like that, I couldn't find my really huge off the shoulder sweater, which I usually wear with a side pony tail, and sometimes a large belt.

Fuck yeah 80s plz

Also, I must reiterate how much I like that guys sweater jacket dealio in the first picture.

I usually agree with you in this thread but there is not a singe thing I would wear in that article and I want to punch the model in the nose.

EDIT: Actually on closer inspection I'd wear the wool coat/jacket thing he's wearing in the left picture in the second row down, which I didn't notice at first since the model is basically obscuring the fucking clothes.

I'm not. That's why I don't mind wearing my jeans that tight.



Also, the nice thing about expensive designer labels, is that there will always be people to make it for less. I know most people living on a budget that still have rad fashion sense do 'clothing inspired by ____'. For a third of the cost.

I totally agree with David Dovey. All of the clothes misconception posted are close to working but manage to annoy me via what should be a seemingly minor detail. For example, I'm perfectly fine with the first outfit except for the length of the sleeves. The 3rd picture (the one Dovey mentioned) has an incredibly dumb pose and I have to pointedly ignore the robin's egg blue shoes before I can begin to appraise it. His jacket might be nice, but it's hard to get a good sense of what the cut is like because he's too busy looking like a moron.

The sleeves are normal length; they're turned up and then pushed up further.  I'd love to have dressed like that when I was that age - some hope, though!

Nice coat, too.  Necklace seems a bit much though.  Boots also don't seem to QUITE fit.  They're nice, but a bit too, I don't know, pointy?  Tight?  High?  Something.  I think maybe they'd look more fitting with that skirt if your legs were bare.

Not at all, most of my clothes go two to fifteen wears. That's right. Unless they get stained or I get really sweaty.

As long as you're not sweating or working construction or something, there's nothing wrong with wearing shirts or pants two or three times before washing them.

Usually it's bad form to do it in a row though becaues then people might think you don't shower.

Guys, I need some fashion advice please.

I graduated in May and need to start a real career.  I just sent out some resumes and am going to start interviewing with CPA firms soon (I hope!).  I don't want to wait until the last minute to decide on what to wear so I am planning outfits ahead of time.  Help me decide between these two shirts:



or



I am planning to wear whichever shirt with a black blazer and a black pencil skirt.  I really like the first one, but I'm afraid it might be too bright for the very conservative atmosphere in Public Accounting.  My problem with the french blue is that it seems like it might make for too dark of an outfit when paired with all black; and I think that the brighter shirt shows my personality more... which I guess could be a good or a bad thing depending on the firm.  I think both colors will work well with my hair and skin tone. 

My ultimate goal is to work for one of the Big Four auditing firms, very prestigious places, so this is an important decision.  Help!

The first would be too bright to go with all black in my opinion. The second colour I think would do well.

Dovey, I am a little sad. I figured you of all people would agree with me, from the dudes' side anyways. Oh well. At least I have some ladies on my side.

FURTHER REVISIONS:

Well obviously I'd wear a white dress shirt and a tie and grey pants (third row, on the right), so there's that as well...

I like cardigans, but I don't really go in for chunky cardigans, and I in particular would look horrible and boxy in a more heavy kind of cardigan. I'm short and I've got a bit of a belly, so I need to rock a fairly streamlined silhouette. Also I have a fairly firm belief that denim should not be worn above the waist, and that whole outfit (bottom row on the left) looks too Springsteen-esque for my tastes. Not my bag at all, baby.

I agree with Whipstitch, that most of the clothes are OK but they're just OK.

Liz what I am trying to say is that even though I wouldn't wear those particular clothes I can kind of see where you're coming from and can we still go on dates plz?

In conclusion, italics.

P.S; I cycle my jeans around on a more-or-less weekly basis.

You know, I once saw a man wearing triple denim. Jeans, jacket and a denim shirt.

All he needed was a denim hat, and he could've created some kind of denim-related singularity tearing apart the fabric of space and time.

Almost everything goes well with black

Quoted, cause I just wanted to say something about this statement.

I had a friend who would SCREAM at you if you wore black with brown or blue at all. I don't disagree with her, but she was crazy about it. So, just stay away from her, and I think you'll be fine.

She's right. I own a lot of black, and a lot of brown. They're horrible together.

What? What? No way. Too much black with one brown thing doesn't work, for instance, I shouldn't wear black pants, boots, and shirt with my brown duster, but black boots, olive pants, black shirt, and brown duster? That works fine. Actually, olive pants are pretty much the best pants I have right now, but most work well, the only exception is the white jeans and the blue pants that are more navy blue than blue jeans blue. Navy and black don't go well together, I will agree with that. blue jeans don't fit the look I am going for as much as they could, but it doesn't mean they go badly with black.

Is there anything Paul doesn't know about?

You keep freaking out over misinterpretations, when you have to realise that tone of voice and body language, which make up about 60% of communication, cannot really be conveyed very well through typing.



Oh man, I love tights as pants. Because it's like not wearing pants but no one will call me a slut.

Also, I like the way it looks. I've worn purple tights with my black boots, a black large slouchy sweater, and some bigger jewelry. I like it. A lot.


Some things should have stayed in the 80s. I am sure it's cute and all, but parachute pants and teased hair were once overwhelmingly popular too. It's not your fault.

The American sizing confuses me, but I could probably find a dozen online guides or so (with "our" sizing), in a couple of minutes.

Yeah, it didn't really work for me. According to the video I fit perfectly into my 13 year old sisters bras. I know my boobs aren't the biggest, but come on! I don't think I would be able to breathe wearing those.


HELLO LADIES STOP BEING STUPID. Since when have you ever worn a size 8 jean in every brand you can find? Do you buy a size 12 dress from every store you ever shop at? When was the last time your shoe size carried across to every brand you happened to like? Sizing is not universal; it's how different companies keep you in their brand. Back in the 20s and 30s, a certain record company produced the absolute cheapest record player anyone had ever bought, and no one could figure out how they managed to sell it for less than half the price of everyone else's. Then they all realised that the pin that sits in the center of the record on this particular brand of player was actually larger than the standard, which meant that once you had this record player you could only play on it wax and vinyl produced by this particular company, as they were the only records that would fit on this turntable.

I wear a size 6 dress from David's Bridal, but I wear a size 4 from Dillard's, and when I make my own dresses I wear a size 12 or 14. I wear a size 2 in Levi and Victoria Secret jeans, but I wear 3s (sometimes) and 4s in everything else. I wear a size 8 in New Balance, a 7 from Chaco, a 7.5 from Qupid, and a size 38 in Doc Martins.

The point of the video was not about the sizing, it was about the fit. Regardless of what size the bra you are looking at RIGHT NOW happens to be, it should still do all those things like laying flat against your chest between your boobs and against your ribcage under them and the band should go across the smallest part of your back (which is pretty much the middle) and not ride up and you should be able to take the straps off your shoulders and have the bra still stay up because the band should be doing 80% of the supporting. If you buy bras from Macy's, then that sizing standard is great for you to use, especially if it works for you. Otherwise, you have to do it the old fashioned way and just guess and try them on until you find the one that works.

If I were to use that sizing method I would be a 32A, because my boobs do not stick off my chest that far. However, I am generally a rather full 32C (sometimes a 32B, depending on the brand), because I have more boob mass than a lot of people. See? It doesn't even work for the person you thought was advocating it! It is a great place to start, sure, but the be-all-end-all of bra fitting is when you have found one that does all of those properly-fitting things. All of them.

Like Liz said,

It's not that bad, really. You measuring around your ribcage, that gives you the band size. Then you go around ribcage+boobs. The difference between the two generally dictates your cup size, 1"=A, 2"=B, etc. This method isn't always perfect, but it gives you a good starting place.


That video Katie posted is pretty nice, but it definitely doesn't cover every problem. A lot of the problems I have with my boobies are apparently opposite problems. One thing is I so have spillage. Major spillage. But then the sides of my bra (the cup part closest to my armpit) bags. I think mine are closer than average or something. And you can very rarely get cute contour bras in my size, and a lot of the ones that are there are minimizers.

The perfect bra is something I don't think I'll ever find. Maybe I'll go into there though to get sized... though I have at several other places too which never helped.

I am pretty sure you can solve that with a different style bra. If your boobs are really soft and a teensy bit (or a lot bit) saggy or even if you have pancake boobs, balcony-bras and balconets (or whatever else they might be called) help give you a little lift and even out your cup fillage. Demi-bras work pretty well for this type of boob, too, although they don't provide the even filling thing. For instance, I have talked this to death with Heather. Remember Heather? She has the most amazing collection of bras I have ever seen, but they are all balcony bras, so I can't steal any or copy them, because I fall over the top of balcony styles. Her boobs are enormous and beautiful and their size kind of drags them down, so they are a little saggy, and so the balcony styles work wonders for her.

Try an underwire balcony bra with some pads that you can try putting in the cleavage sides of the cups to push your boobs toward the center of the cups.



Also, remember, if you can't find a good bra, corsets came first, and those ALWAYS work.

Calenlass:
A little while after I posted I realized there's a difference between American and European cup sizes, so in America I would have worn A-cup, while here in Europe I wear B-cup bras. So I guess the video wasn't as far off as I thought after all, I was just being a bit stupid  :wink:

Nice coat, too.  Necklace seems a bit much though.  Boots also don't seem to QUITE fit.  They're nice, but a bit too, I don't know, pointy?  Tight?  High?  Something.  I think maybe they'd look more fitting with that skirt if your legs were bare.


If you wish to give constructive criticism, can you please be a bit more articulate?

If you wish to ask something of me, can you please be less of a bitch?

Jesus.  I'm going back to the music forum.  I plain don't get this shit.


Yes, clearly you don't get this shit. I may be a bitch but I think it is sometimes deserved.

Haha, we have AA cups in Europe, they are so cute! Pretty sure they have them in America too, but to find them you have to look very closely because they are so small you can hardly see them.

I don't think I was being stupid? I just said that the American sizes confused me, but that I would probably be able to find an online guide with "our"/European sizes that would give me a better idea of what to look for in stores. Of course I'd try stuff on etc., to make sure it fit like it should. My comment was meant more like a.."oh, maybe I should do that", "that" being find a guide with the proper sizing.


Also, haircut today (sort of fashion? and the hair-thread is dead)! It looks/looked and felt fucking weird, because the hairdresser apparently "styled it", meaning she made it look like I'd just gotten out of bed, and it covered half my face. Maybe I'll like it better with less goo in it, I hope so. But what I was really going to say was that I bought reading glasses, for the first time ever, because apparently I need them. They're not fancy, but I think they looked okay, at least for the price (cheapest they had). Something like this, if I remember correctly, only the entire thing is brown:

Good/not good? Maybe impossible to say without a face. They weren't my favourite, but since I don't have to wear them all the time, and they were cheap, I think I'm pleased.

Okay, so this is what I learned from reading the alst two pages of the 'fashion' thread. Drill King kinda can't dress and neither can several other peeps. No offense, you just don't understand proportion. And whoever the dick was who said a big chunky sweater "balances out" leggings is kind of a doofus. Like if anything, it would create even more disproportion! Real Talk. Please ladies, put pants on before you leave the house. I have never met an individual who didn't wear jeans that I couldn't convert back to the light. Leggings can be cute with a dress but they always make me cringe when being subbed for pants.

I'm a bit late, but redglasscurls - those peacock feather earrings are GREAT! I've been looking for a pair of my own, where did you get yours?
I made them! I bought a bouquet of feathers at a craft store, wound the ends with sterling wire to make loops and hold the shape, then attached hooks. So yep! If you are less crafty, check on etsy.com

Now now children, play nice, no need to get all angry on the eenternets...

Incidentally, could someone if the tshirt covered by a colbert (one of these, not one of these) is a good or a bad idea? I am kind of in doubt...

I'd say you should go for a sports jacket (the casual type of blazer, not a tracksuit top).
